Trumpet Quartet Sheet Music PDF
by Eddie Lewis
Happy Camper is a trumpet quartet written in swing style. It is one of several in my jazz inspired trumpet ensemble series. I’ll come up with a title for the series later. For now, I just enjoy writing the jazz stuff in this idiom.
Happy Camper actually sounds happy! When I was writing it, I would dance around my office while listening to the playback. 🙂 It’s fun. It’s happy. It would be a great way to lighten up a recital or chamber concert.
Using our seven skill level system, where the first level is absolute beginners and the seventh level is virtuoso, Happy Camper is at the Trumpet Pro level. The highest note in the first part is high C. The rhythms can be a bit tricky if you’ve never played jazz music before.
